The great cinema clown Charlie Chaplin made this, his first feature film, in 1921 after years on the stage and in short films. In it, his signature character, the Little Tramp, adopts an orphan and suffers the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Chaplin’s magic shines through even today for audiences of all ages.


“As always, Chaplin’s opulent Victorian sentimentality is made palatable both by the amazing grace of his pantomimic skills and the balancing presence of harsh reality.” – Geoff Brown, Time Out
